Skype 8.55 update released with several new features including Meet Now

Microsoft today announced the release of Skype v8.55 update with several new features across platforms. This new update includes a new feature called Meet Now which allows you to make a call with someone who does not use Skype. With this new feature, you can set up a call on Skype and share a link to others. Even if the recipient is not on Skype, he or she can join the call using the link. This update also includes several bug fixes. Find the full change log below.

Skype for Windows, Mac, Linux and Web:

  • Don’t wait. Meet Now on Skype: With Meet Now you can quickly and easily create a meeting and invite anyone (even if they aren’t on Skype) just by sharing a link.
  • Send a message with tone: Is text losing your tone? You can now send a voice message in Skype instead. Also, feel free to show off that guitar riff you just learned.
  • Bug fixes and stability improvements: We smashed some bugs, but a quick trip through the car wash cleaned the windshield quite nicely.

Skype for Android, iPhone and iPad:

  • Don’t wait. Meet Now on Skype: With Meet Now you can quickly and easily create a meeting and invite anyone (even if they aren’t on Skype) just by sharing a link.
  • Do more with your camera: Skype for Android users now have the ability to scan and send documents (or even notes on a whiteboard) in addition to other photo and video personalization enhancements. Also, send the receipt for last night’s tab to your friends – they owe you, make sure they don’t forget!
  • Bug fixes and stability improvements: We smashed some bugs, but a quick trip through the car wash cleaned the windshield quite nicely.

What’s fixed:

  • The Skype system tray icon on desktop is showing correctly after startup
  • Brazil time zone is now showing correctly
  • Settings window correctly reopens when minimized
  • Split view mode persists between sign ins
  • Split view can be enabled and disabled in the Appearance settings also
  • Added support for System Dark Theme detection on Windows 10
  • Location sharing in split view mode now works as expected
  • App notarized for macOS 10.15
